Gold American Buffalo

The American Gold Buffalo coin in brilliant uncirculated condition, first introduced in 2006, is the first .9999 pure coin produced by the US Mint available to investors.

General Details

At 24 karat gold and in mint, uncirculated condition, the Gold American Buffalo is a relatively new and elegant revitalization of a classic design, fully backed by the US Government, and quickly gaining in popularity with investors.

A pristine and sparkling bullion minting, it’s the first .9999 pure 24 karat gold coin to be struck by the US Mint — truly a historic and stylish way to beef up your gold holdings.

About the Gold American Buffalo Coin

The Buffalo Gold carries a face value of $50, and is US legal tender. It comes in sealed plastic and the US government guarantees the coin’s authenticity and purity.

The obverse face of the coin features a Native American chieftain in profile, repurposed in tribute from James Earle Fraser’s original, iconic design of the 1913 Indian Head Nickel. The reverse side features the titular buffalo himself, in this case a rendering of Black Diamond, an actual bison and well-known inhabitant of New York’s Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s.

About the New Pressing

The Buffalo Gold’s latest edition began its newest run in 2006, the first 24 karat gold coins of its kind, and has continued production annually to great popularity in the ensuing years. The coins also come in half-ounce ($25 face value), quarter-ounce ($10), and tenth of an ounce ($5) pressings.

Note these are uncirculated coins and carry the W mint mark to distinguish them from the regular bullion offerings.

They’re fully guaranteed and IRA eligible. Rarely is a bullion product this secure and pristine.

As always, Midas Gold Group is more than happy to advise prospective buyers on whether this coin is right for your precious metals portfolio. Any coin bought from us will always come to you in immaculate condition straight from the mint itself.
